Pinned toot

PSA from your resistance.social mod team:

If you like to toot every minute or so, please take a look at the icons under the box where you type your text and change the globe 🌎 (public) to the lock 🔒 (followers only). Posting constantly can get our instance muted by other instances for what is called "spamming the public timelines." If you are only tooting to your followers, they are people who want to read your toots and it's not a problem. Make your most important toots public. 🌍

Thanks!

If you are voting by mail and your state has ballot tracking, make sure to take advantage of that. Mine was recorded as received today. I dropped it off a week ago. I hope that means they are overwhelmed with ballots and can't keep up with them.

Voting is done for me and and my family and it is BLUE ALL THE WAY!! PRESIDENT Joe Biden...has a nice ring to it doesn't it? I cannot wait.

Gee, I think the House Democrats passed a $3 trillion relief bill back in May, which Mitch ignored for 5 months. Then he turned over the table and didn't want to play at all.

Because the interests of the people aren't his interests.

If a bill is not voted on before Election Day, it will never happen if Democrats don't win both the Presidency and the Senate and even then it's after January 20th.

Removing Republicans from power is literally a matter of life and death (and decades of suffering and financial ruin) for hundreds of thousands of our fellow Americans who have done nothing to deserve this fate.

Getting caught doing insider trading may not be the smartest move to get elected, Kelly Loeffler.

Keep working hard to help get out the Democratic vote in Georgia.

There is a real chance here to gain ground in this state and get better representation for everyone, especially in the 2 U.S. Senate races - help elect Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock.

Republicans are scrambling to shore up their conservative base in Georgia amid rising fears within the party that the state’s status as a GOP stronghold is at risk of slipping away.

@TonyStark My vote's in; dropped the wife's in the dropbox, but had to do early voting as my mail ballot got damaged. Took about 20min from getting in line to getting back in the car. Best reason to stand in a line I've in a long time. Properly distanced as well. Now we just need the rest of the country to #Vote

#popefrancis just endorsed same-sex civil unions. Do you know who wasn't making dubious moral judgements of same-sex couples in the first place? We #atheists, that's who! If you don't believe in any god or are having doubs, you're not alone. #atheism #Agnosticism

Reality has practically no bearing on the world view, attitudes, or actions of modern American "conservatives." Scaring up racism does.

Join me these next 13 days and help vote them into oblivion. :voteblue2:

Remember, none of this disaster from the criminal traitor in the White House could be happening without the full support, embrace, and consent of the gutless, corrupt Republican Senators.

Vote. All. Republicans. Out.

Vote blue up and down the ticket, for all offices, in all locations.
